My poor baby (5.5 months) was banded as soon as he arrived at our farm, about a month ago. Now he has an odd looking growth I fear is a hernia at the site. The scabbed area from the banding has been pushed away from his body by a dark pink growth. He isn't in pain, and there's no bleeding. Until i can get the vet out here i have sprayed it with blukote to prevent flies. Please tell me what i can do. I'm afraid the vet who is somewhat knowledgeable wouldn't be able to help with this issue.

oh poor baby...I think a vet is your best bet...he needs that looked at to be sure of whats going on..Keep up the blukote. Check his temp ...
is he acting well other wise? eating drinking pooping peeing playful?
If he didnt have a tentanus shot before banding, I would do that now...Tetanus antitoxin is 2 cc sub Q
